The lost light

I picked this book from NetGalley mostly because of a pretty cover and the number of requests ;). I know, that’s pretty shallow, but this one happened to be a great read! I have no regrets and the second part is already on my NetGalley reading list.

You can find this book on Goodreads and Amazon.

Two month anniversary!

Yohooo!! Look at that. I’ve been here for two months already. It’s kind of fascinating, it might mean I’m going to stay here longer 😉 and bother you guys even more with all my posts.

That can take from two weeks to a month, so you can see this blog is starting to be a permanent thing 😀 and I like that!

The blog itself

You might’ve noticed I did some changes to the blog structure and the look. Yea, the changing theme action might happen from time to time. Sometimes I just need change. This time, I was both bored and a bit annoyed with the previous theme. It had one small issue – the tag cloud was horrible. Other than that it was perfect. I’ll be trying this look now and see how it will work.

Other than the theme, I’ve added the “Review policy” page. It might not get that many visitors now, but I’m looking into the future ;). And I completely changed my “About me” page. Continue reading “Two month anniversary!”
